Local Development Scheme

The Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service prepares and maintains a Local Development Scheme on behalf of Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council.

The scheme is a timetable for the production of new or revised documents that set out the planning policy framework for Greater Cambridge. It is designed to help community members and other stakeholders understand what plans we have and intend to produce.

The latest Local Development Scheme [PDF, 0.7MB] was adopted in July 2020. It sets out the timetable for the preparation of the Greater Cambridge Local Plan and the North East Cambridge Area Action Plan.

It also lists the neighbourhood areas that have been designated and where a neighbourhood plan is being prepared by a neighbourhood forum.
